The Office of Career Services provides post-graduation assistance to recent alumni up to one year following graduation. Recent graduates seeking assistance may contact us at (540) 464-7560, or by email at careerservices@vmi.edu.  Alumni seeking assistance with employment opportunities should contact Brittney Matthews '15.  We also offer alumni, regardless of graduation date, complimentary access to CareerShift and VAULT. To learn more about these resources, please visit the Online Career Resources area below. Alumni wishing to post an internship or job opportunity can visit the Employers area of our website to learn more about sharing these opportunities.

Online Career Resources:

We offer alumni regardless of graduation year complimentary access to online career resources. Alumni with active VMI email addresses can register for any of these resources without restriction. Alumni who no longer have VMI email addresses can contact Career Services to request credentials to use these resources.

CareerShift is an easy to use job search and networking tool.  With CareerShift, you can search multiple company and job board listings through one location, find inside contact information for millions of companies, and create and store your job search documents.  For more information, see the CareerShift Guide.

VAULT career information center has a wide array of online career information guides regarding numerous topics including resumes, interviews and job search advice. Also available are organizational profiles for over 4,000 potential employers in various industries and a searchable list of specific employment opportunities. For more information, see the VAULT Guide.

Alumni and cadets are able to connect through the Mentor Network.  We offer a convenient online system for alumni wishing to mentor cadets on our web-based recruiting system, KeydetConnect.

Alumni who register can serve as an invaluable resource to cadets in numerous ways; they can:

  • Provide career advice to cadets seeking guidance
  • Provide information about current and past employers
  • Inform cadets of internship and job opportunities with their current employer

The VMI Alumni Career Mentor Network also allows alumni to:

  • Choose how many cadets to connect with monthly
  • Choose the method of communication with cadets (email, phone, mail)

VMI cadets now have access and are seeking your assistance. Please consider making yourself available through this valuable medium. You can load your information whenever you’d like. It won’t take more than a few minutes, but may have a lasting impact on our cadets!!

NOTE: If you have questions contact the staff at Career Services, or phone (540) 464-7560.
